Building Energy Rating (BER)
ORS is the Irish National Auditor for the SEAI BER (Building Energy Rating) scheme both domestic and non-domestic. According to SEAI, a BER is required under the following circumstances:
- The building owner must obtain a BER before a new building is occupied for the first time regardless of whether it is offered for sale or rent.
- When a new or existing building is offered for sale or rent the seller/renter must provide a BER to prospective buyers or tenants. BER details must be included in advertisements when a building is offered for sale or rent.
BER assessments performed on new builds also help determine compliance to Part L of the Building Regulations.
As National Auditors, ORS are not in a position to carry out actual BERs or DECs. However due to our vast experience and knowledge, ORS is in the unique position to advise on best practice in terms of achieving quality Building Energy Ratings and setting building energy strategies for both private and commercial clients.
